My boys (4 and 5) are curious about everything. Now that my one is in Kindergarten he is starting to learn more about all sorts of subjects, science especially. Magnets are something that always amazed me so I admit I was just as excited to check out the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources, as my boys were!

This kit includes 14 pieces including 10 double-sided activity cards. The activity cards are both easy and challenging and some require some household objects such as water or paperclips. The set though was fun on its own for us. My boys were amazed at how the magnets would stick together one way and not the other way. I started teaching them about polar opposites, magnetism and science in general. The pieces that this kit comes with are ones that I would have never thought of using together. There is a big horsehoe magnet perfect to work little magnetic ladybugs through a maze. Ring magnets and a magnetic post are fun because you can make the magnetics float on the pole. My sons favorite though is the Snap-on Cars. You can push the cars together and watch them spin away from one another or magnetically snap them together to zoom around. This is a simple kit but fun and perfect for young learners.

I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources!

First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work.

A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun.

The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way!

I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!

My almost 3 year old is already getting a lot out of playing with this magnet set. The only thing keeping it from a 5 star rating is that the magnets don't seem very strong, in my opinion. But perhaps that's not a bad thing for young children. The suggested activities that come with this set are fantastic!

Everything is high quality...our boys (ages 5 & 6) had fun exploring the different ways to use the magnets. Wish there were some more ideas with the kit...they enjoyed what we did but don't really want to play with it again.

It didn't take long for my kids to want to play with the Magnet Set ofter they saw hubby and me checking it out. I love how there are so many different fun activities you can do with this set. You are able to move little lady bugs around on the maze while moving a handle around the bottom of the maze. You are also able to put a ring on the stand then put another one and it will float above the other magnet. To the kids it was like magic. You are able to see how one way you can stack the magnets on each other, or how they will come together and get stuck really fast. You are also able to use opposite sides of the magnets to where you can move the magnets or have them float, without them ever touching. Very amazing.

All components of the set are magnetized, there is a really cool Handle magnet, that is kid friendly spin on the design of a traditional U-shaped magnet. Oddly, this was my favorite thing in the set. Something about its design screamed "cool" and "innovation". Of course, my son's favorite parts were the little magnetized cars, which can also be "magically" moved via magnet under the table.

I am really happy with the included activity cards, as they are really interesting. There are a lot of really cool suggestions that you can try and be amazed by. The ideas on the activity cards will help you think of even more creative ideas. The kids have had so much fun testing this and that. I feel they have learned a lot about how magnets work, the pull they have and gravity. This would be great for any classroom, or at home to teach your little ones
